Star Wars

Back in February I had an order request for a Star Wars themed baby shower set:




This set was my biggest hit on my Facebook and Instagram pages, so much that last month I received an email from a tv station out in Phoenix, Your Phx CW, asking if they could feature my cookies. 
I was floored by this request. They asked if they could come to my home and film me making cookies. I no longer live in Phoenix and was a little deflated that it wouldn't work out, so I asked if I could have pictures taken by my friend Sara and ship the finished cookies to still be featured, they gladly accepted the plan change. (happy dance!!!)

Below are the pictures of the process and finished product and at the very end is the link to the Facebook segment from Your Phx CW.











I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it. 







Supporting Small Businesses



I have been blessed with the opportunity to support a small business from my hometown, White Mountain Tees, in Snowflake AZ for almost 6 months.
They had come to me with the idea of a reoccurring order twice a month of t-shirt cookies with their company logo, I jumped at the idea because not only would my small business help their small business but they would be helping me as well.
Each cookie that is distributed has their logo on it but my information is also on the packaging. I have received orders from this process and I love how we can support one another in our dreams. 

Christmas with Mrs. Claus

As a mom, I have found there is so much pressure (most unnecessary I might add) to have your kids included in every class possible so that they do not get bored, left behind, or socially stunted. Really?? 
Growing up in a large family I didn't have the luxury of being entertained every minute of every day by our parents or other adults. To tell you the truth I am grateful I wasn't because it did give me time to be bored, to learn to find my own fun, and to just learn to be content being on my own. 

When I became a mom, I still had a full time job which lasted until my second child was due. As I was learning to navigate motherhood to two children (soooooo much harder than a full time job!), my daughter had many opportunities to be bored but I began to looked for little breaks not only for myself but for my 2 year old. We found pre-school classes offered by Gilbert Parks & Recreation. They were a wonderful answer to our needs and I would recommend them to anyone with young children. 

Every December Gilbert Recreation Center has "Tea with Mrs. Claus" and this year I was asked if I would donate cookies and attend with my kids. I happily accepted because GP&R has been a wonderful part of my children's lives and learning. 


Tea included Santa's elves mingling with guests, yummy food from several local businesses, story time with Mrs. Claus and a surprise visit from Beauty and the Beast.  My kids loved every minute of it and I am so grateful to this community and the efforts they put forth and I was honored to be asked to participate. 


My apprentice

My 5 year old daughter's attempt at turning a leaf shaped cookie into a turkey. 

Just a tasty reminder than they watch us (closer than I would like sometimes), and that we need to be someone they look up to. 

I can't wait until she perfects her flooding technique, she'll be unstoppable. Don't you just love the white eye lashes? She said "that's so they'll know it's a girl turkey!"
